View Full Version : Windows 2000 maximum connections

04-10-2003, 11:56 AM
Hi people,
I'm on a TCP/IP LAN with about 30 PCs. I run Win2k Pro and all the rest are on Win95/98.
I have a shared folder on my machine which i use for instalations and is mapped to a letter on all them.
My problem is that when i go machine by machine and connect to my shared folder from them after about 10 times i receive a message that my computer has reached its maximum connections limit and i should try later. I've setup the permissions for my shared folder to Maximum allowed. I noticed that the only solution is disabling the local connection and re-enabling it.
Same happens with a Windows NT server machine (it didn't happened before till i installed SP6)
Any ideas to fix this annoying problem?
Thank you!

Remember you have limitations when working with a Workgroup.

For 30 clients, I would recomend you a Domain Controller (Server)

We already have an NT4 server domain controller.
But should i specify this limits on it instead of on my own machine?
From where?
ps: do you speak spanish?
